Ostrich Boys by Keith Gray

This was quite a good book and I enjoyed reading it.
The book is about three boys - Kenny, Blake and Sim. Their best friend Ross had recently died by being run over by a car when he was on his bike. Ross' funeral was very disappointing and they thought that the vicar hadn't put enough into the sermon.

The three of them decide that the best thing to do is to make their own funeral for Ross. Ross had always told them that he wanted to go to a little village called Ross in Scotland so they steal Ross' ashes and make their way by train to Ross.

One by one things happen preventing them to get to Ross the way that they want to. Things start to go wrong so do they eventually get to Ross? Well you will have to read the book and find out!

This story is told by Blake one of the boys who is about fifteen. It is set nowadays. I would give this book a 7 out of 10 because I really enjoyed reading it and recommend it to other people - although there is quite a bit of swearing.

I think that people reading this book should be at least 12 plus as there is lots and lots of swearing in it which I didn't realise when I bought the book!
